I've read a few beginning iPhone game programming books, and they've helped tremendously in my education and advancement in creating a few simple games, but of all the books I've read, there doesn't seem to be anything about creating a Settings Menu or how to change and save settings within a game.
What are some ways that settings can be saved/loaded? Where are these settings saved?
This may seem like a simple, uninteresting question, but I can't find anywhere that has a good explanation on how to go about creating a settings menu and how the data is saved/loaded each time the program ends/starts...
Mind you I'm not really expecting to have code thrown at me, but an explanation on how the structure works and how to wrap my head around the whole concept (though code is pretty ;)). Or even some articles that explain the concept that I could read would be very helpful.
